My name is Richard Skin. Yes, the last letter I wrote was last March; so far I’m doing okay. I’m not getting any counselling, but I’m getting lots of support from my family.
I help everyone who needs help, but I am still barred from the mall and another restaurant. I made those mistakes when I was heavy on my alcohol, but now I am a changed person, I don’t bother anyone.
This is my hometown, I was born and raised in Burns Lake. I’ve made a few mistakes but I want to apologize to those people, but I can’t see them so I’ll do that through the newspaper.
Everyone knows I’m an alcoholic but right now I’m on my second month of sobriety. I’m doing very well now, I’m helping the elders out on my spare time. I’m doing all this on my own.
I do pray maybe the Lord is helping me now that I’ve quit drinking. I appreciate all of you for your support.
